It wasn't.
The top-5 were (I think) Genting, Stelvio, Tourmalet, Mortirolo and Alpe d'Huez. Not necessarily in that order.

But yes, Letras would dwarf most other climbs.Unfortunately, virtually noone knows about it - which is why we need a 2.1 (at least) Tour of Colombia. Not replacing the current 2.2 race, but in addition to that.

I like Stetina, Brambilla, Pardilla, Rolland in this. Perhaps Kashechkin and Monsalve as well.

I will go with Pardilla

The 2.2 ranked Tour of Borneo was a new race on the asian calendar last year and they raced us up the first portion of kinabalu at the end of a 220k stage. Except it was only ~10k of climbing. The race is on again this year so perhaps they'll take it a notch further
